My prediction: Bears 13, Lions 21

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:00 PM

Shameless plug: Reward yourself for dealing w/Chicago’s cold & snow with some sand & cervesas! 

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:01 PM

Kevin Powell checking in 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:02 PM

What’s one the menu for today’s game, KP?

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:02 PM

I’m thinking a ham sandwich and/or a frozen pizza 

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:03 PM

Also, huge test for Barkley today. Road game. We’ll see what he can do. 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:04 PM

Great point. 

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:09 PM

Is OB on tomorrow? 

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:10 PM

Barkley time

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:15 PM

Big throw. Nice catch. 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:16 PM

Barkley threads the needle, there. If he can survive the onslaught off Lions pass rush, might have a shot at upsetting the Lions

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:17 PM

Jordan Howard just continues to produce

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:23 PM

That ball should have been picked 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:32 PM

Lions offense looks sloppy.

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:34 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:35 PM

Fun fact:

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:36 PM

Matt Forte…

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:38 PM

Almost all the Bears jerseys you see are of former players 

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:39 PM

Do I make a Superdawg run at halftime? 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:39 PM

I still rock my Brandon Marshall t-shirt.

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:40 PM

Absolutely, give a report from the roads on your way.

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:44 PM

Comin down pretty good here in Mt. Prospect 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:46 PM

No snow currently on Chicago’s north-side

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:50 PM

Its comin

Kevin Powell December 11, 201612:50 PM

I like this Bears defense. Specifically the front seven. They get after it. 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 201612:54 PM

Stafford is dangerous when he scrambles, great vision

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20161:00 PM

Ah, the nostalgia

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20161:06 PM

Bears receivers jumping again for no reason, to be a pro you need to make those catches.  

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20161:11 PM

Kevin Powell December 11, 20161:17 PM

Haha yes!

Kevin Powell December 11, 20161:18 PM

Whatever happens here. Still a pretty good half for the Bears.

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20161:19 PM

Good half for Bears’ D-line, Howard, & Barkley.  Everyone else has explaining to do.

Kevin Powell December 11, 20161:19 PM

That stings 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20161:21 PM

I genuinely don’t think that was a clean catch, but I didn’t see a good replay.

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20161:38 PM

Snow is coming down in Andersonville, Rd1 of shoveling/salting complete.

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20161:40 PM

This is missing penalties, that’s the deciding factor so far

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20161:44 PM

Kevin Powell December 11, 20161:55 PM

James Robert Cooter. Great name 

Kevin Powell December 11, 20161:59 PM

Bearsss are back 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:04 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:07 PM

This is how I feel when #NewsOrRuse doesn’t go into bonus rounds…

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:09 PM

Kevin Powell December 11, 20162:12 PM

Eddie Goldman NEEDS to stay healthy 

Kevin Powell December 11, 20162:12 PM

Adding the short timer to News or Ruse was one of the great things to happen to America in 2016 

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:16 PM

Heads up play!

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:17 PM

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:30 PM

Pick Six!! So much for my prediction. 

Kevin Powell December 11, 20162:31 PM

The Bears are back

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:35 PM

This was the theme of my senior prom in HS

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:42 PM

Bears need some more tackling practice

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:43 PM

Oof…

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:44 PM

Beast mode: Level Le’Veon

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:46 PM

Clutch 3rd Down conversion

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:51 PM

Barkley looks WAY more poised in hurry up/big pressure situations compared to Cutler

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:54 PM

Unbelievable….penalties are killing Barkley’s stellar play

jeffcarlinwgnam December 11, 20162:58 PM

That’ll do it, Bellamy should have had that last one. Now to hear Hamp, OB, & Koz breaking this one down.

Kevin Powell December 11, 20163:09 PM

A win would have been nice

Kevin Powell December 11, 20163:10 PM

Tune into the best Bears postgame in town. Should be fun.
